jot it down / take note
L - Nikon / T - Nikon
Another fun-filled weekend. Friday after work and it was off to a good start. Taylor joined me at a party that one of my workmates was having (an open house). I was so pleased that she would choose to do that with me on a Friday night. Afterwards, we went out to eat and dined outdoors – actually needing our sweaters to stay warm – such a pleasant evening. Saturday we were up bright and early for boot camp. This was the first of the summer session. I was so pleased that Taylor decided to join me in the pain. Of course she out performed me by far. The rest of the day was relaxed – reading in the hammock, a little of this and that. Sunday was the highlight of the weekend. Taylor and I attended a photography workshop from 9am - 5pm and really felt like we came home with some good information. The instructor was very easy to understand and had a pleasant personality. The exciting part of the day was having a live model shoot with a choice of 4 different model "stations". We had a belly dancer, an exotic sword dancer, a prom date, a basketball player, an urban teen, a superfly, a woman in a traditional sari, an Egyptian lady, etc. I After comparing images I found that hers were far better composed and exposed than mine – no surprise really. Maybe I'll show a few on my autumnsun blog if she doesn't mind. From there we went to the Virgina Highlands Artfest were see listened to a favorite band and I view amazing art.
I haven't neglect your blogs on purpose - in fact I've missed them very much. I hope you all had wonderful weekends as well.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
